Holiday Gift Guide

Perhaps one of the most challenging traditions of the holiday season is making a shopping list and checking it twice.  To help alleviate gift-giving stress, ESFI suggests that you consider gifting home safety devices to your loved ones this year.  These unique gift ideas go beyond the traditional, providing the added gift of safety:

 

  • For a Loved One with an Older Home: Contact a licensed electrician to install advanced electrical safety technologies that offer enhanced protection against electrical fires and shocks or electrocution.
  • For a Loved One with Young Children: Help prevent childhood shock and electrical burn injuries by giving your loved ones the most effective means of preventing accidental access to or tampering with a wall outlet in the home.
  • For Any Loved One or Friend: Make sure your loved ones are protected with the latest smoke and carbon monoxide alarm technology.  These easy-to-install devices save lives by providing early warning of fire or the presence of carbon monoxide, the “silent killer.”
  • Protecting Big-Ticket Items: Big-ticket electronics, such as televisions, computers and gaming consoles, are at the top of many holiday wish lists.   While safety may not be the first thing that comes to mind when shopping the holiday sales, purchasing, installing, and operating these items safely protects not only this expensive equipment, but also the entire home.
